Comforting Fall Foods from Honeyville


Do you love fall as much as I do? The smell of fresh apples, crisp air, and autumn harvests. The beautiful colors, changing leaves, and cool temperatures. Warm sweaters, trick-or-treaters, Friday night High School Football games. The sights, smells, and sounds of fall are all around, and with this officially being the second day in October I thought it would be a great time to talk about the other sense we love during fall – the tastes!
 
After months of hot weather, fall is our first taste of those warm meals we’ve been wanting since the end of July! Today we’re going to focus on some of the wonderful products we have here at Honeyville that can help all of us get in the Fall mood. They may even become some of your traditional favorites each time fall rolls back around.

Chili and Cornbread


Remember that word matching game in elementary school? The one where the teacher would say “Peanut Butter” and the students would say “Jelly.” Or “Ham” and “Cheese.” Or “Meat” and “Potatos.” Well, when it comes to fall, when someone says “Chili” I say “Cornbread.” Were there any two items better matched than these? And with Honeyville Chili Flavored TVP and Honeyville Yellow Corn Meal, you’ve got the perfect ingredients to make these Fall classics come to life! Try combining them into one amazing Fall recipe the whole family will love, like Callie’s delicious Chili Corn Bread Casserole. Yum!

Warm Soup


You know that the minute I mentioned Fall foods, your mind immediately went to a delicious, warm soup recipe that your mom or grandma would always pull out of the recipe book right about the time the leaves changed from green to red, yellow, and orange. For me, it was my mom’s skier stew! Perhaps for you, as it was with me, the part even better than eating the soup was the smell of it cooking each fall evening when you’d get back from school or work. While we’ll always miss those amazing recipes, Honeyville has given us a great substitution that brings all the goodness of mom’s recipe that cooks in a matter of minutes! Honeyville’s Potato Cheese Soup Mix is a hearty, warm meal that tastes and smells great! Add it to a sourdough bread bowl and you’ve got a new fall tradition that will soon become part of your family’s memories of Autumn!

Cocoa


I know some of us typically consider this a Christmas treat, but think about it. How many times do you drink cocoa during the fall? In a warm thermos at the local football game. A warm drink to cuddle up to the fireplace with when that first fall snow touches the ground. On a cool Halloween night brewing in your own personal cauldron.  You know you use it, and here at Honeyville, our hot cocoas are second to none! We’ve got a flavor for every member of the family! Whether it’s our traditional Marshmallow Motherlode mix, our Irish Cream, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, Raspberry, or even Mint, you’re sure to find the perfect flavor for a cool Fall day. My personal favorite has to be our Mexican Style Cocoa. With just a hint of cinnamon, this is the perfect blend to warm me up and get me ready for any autumn activity!
Yes, Fall is all about the sights and sounds, but we all know that our palette is just as excited for this season as is our ears and nose. So tell me, what is your favorite thing about Fall?
